I don't have the time right now to do proper bugzilla entries, but in the interest of time, I'm posting them here. I'm not at a computer, and my dmd install is a recent beta, etc...
I noticed that if I compile code that lacks a main function, I get something on the order of 8 error messages. Most of which would be meaningless to someone writing a hello world app.
The other thing I noticed is more obscure. unaryFunc does not seem to support void return types when using a string alias. For example "x[a] = foo(a)". Creating a nested function seems to get around the problem.
